Classical Revolution


Join us this week at Bar Thalia for a Chamber Jam - an open mic / reading session for classical music.

Contact us at [email protected] if you'd like to play!

Classical Revolution was founded in the fall of 2006 when several former and current San Francisco Conservatory of Music students met at Revolution Cafe in San Francisco's Mission District for public chamber music reading sessions.

Since then, Classical Revolution has presented more than 1500 chamber music events in venues all around the SF Bay Area, with the goal of presenting high quality performances in locations that are extremely accessible.

The concept has spread to cities around the world, with chapters and offshoots in NYC, Portland, Baltimore, Richmond VA, Tallahassee, Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Madison, and more.

Over 1200 musicians have participated in Classical Revolution events in San Francisco alone.

These musicians come from a variety of backgrounds, from members of major symphonies and international concert soloists to amateur musicians who have found an outlet for their love of chamber music, to jazz and folk musicians whom we collaborate and share ideas with.

Classical Revolution has been featured in numerous publications including San Francisco Chronicle, Strings Magazine, Airways - the American Airlines magazine, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, Mother Jones, and The New York Times.
